SEPTEMBER 1, 2020 – With the school year underway, Elevate Internet, DMEA’s 100% fiber internet provider, is providing a second round of assistance for local students and educators.
To help families and teachers continue to adapt to online curriculum, Elevate is offering free installation and one month of free internet service for homes in which students and teachers reside.
“There are a lot of uncertainties for parents, teachers, and students alike right now. High-speed internet is now a necessity for modern education and the last thing we want the community to worry about is their internet connection,” stressed Kent Blackwell, Chief Technology Officer for Elevate Internet and DMEA.
Elevate’s education assistance will be available through September. It is open to families with students in the home, from preschool through post-graduate work, as well as local educators. In addition, Elevate will donate $50 to the school or teacher of each participant’s choosing (while supplies last) to help offset the added costs of equipping classrooms with COVID-19 protection supplies.
Families and teachers in need of a better internet connection can sign up for Elevate’s service online at https://www.elevateinternet.com/connectstudents.
